Self-assembly of Acridine Orange into H-aggregates at the air/water interface: tuning of orientation of headgroup.


The surface active derivative of the organic dye Acridine Orange (N-10-dodecyl-acridine orange (DAO)) has been included in mixed Langmuir monolayers with stearic acid (SA). The maximum relative content on DAO for a stable mixed monolayer is a molar ratio of X(DAO) = 0.5. Brewster angle microscopy (BAM) reveals a high homogeneity at the micrometer level for… (More)
